A Royal Society event at the Science Museum's IMAX Theatre
In partnership with The Science Museum, this panel discussion will explore the future possibilities for intelligent robots and discover what they will do, how we will use them, and how they might use us.
Will we see thinking, feeling robots in our lifetimes, or is the idea of sentient machines a pipe dream? Join our panel to explore the social, philosophical and economic
implications of advanced intelligence in robots, the dangers and opportunities this intelligence may present, and find out how close we are to being replaced as the most intelligent beings on Earth.
Our host for the event will be science broadcaster and author Dr Adam Rutherford, he'll be joined by a panel of experts.
- Bristol UWE's Professor of Robot Ethics Alan Winfield
- Science broadcaster, writer and comedian Timandra Harkness
